We are....Big Ten Champions!

We are....Big Ten Champions!

A bit of a change in subject but Penn State is Big Ten Champions for football!  A fantastic storyline seeing that they were a pitiful 9th in the Big Ten last season.  A stinkin' debatable 2 seconds from the Michigan game is what stands between us and an undefeated season!  Ah well 10-1 isn't too shabby and a BCS bowl awaits...which means definite party potential come the New Year:-)  #3 in the BCS! GO STATE!

I finally succombed to the head cold.  Friday I left early from work after getting brutally sick after my Friday morning run.  I ended up napping for 3 hours...although is it truly a nap after an hour? Or is it sleep?  Anyway, what a saving grace that was and I was able to get my mangled body up and head out for KP's friend's party on the west side.  However, I definitely was not my usual self...the dependable one that can be assured to give proper directions and the like.  Certain people can atest to this as they ended up 15 blocks from the proper bar. Whoops.  Not to worry, regular ole' me is back now!

"Ran" into roommate #2 on the street yesterday about 5 minutes before meeting up with roommate #1.  That would have been an interesting situation had they seen eachother (probably better off not).

What does it say when my next 2 vacations will most likely be planned around running a race at some point???

Apparently inflation has hit laundry. It cost me 25 cents more for the washer AND the dryer...so 50 cents more to do each load of laundry!!

As for running, I am so back. I did my first back to back 5 and 6 mile runs (and another 5 today)...and felt great!  All the runs were under 9 min/mile and no heaviness in the legs could be felt at all.  I'm definitely excited about this as I think after Thanksgiving I'll start attending speed sessions with my team again.  Not to mention, I've got a race this Thursday morning (barring absolutely ridiculous weather)!  Bring it!

    haha awesome:) You're safe then...because as you can see I bleed blue and white...very school spirited:-p

    Meant to ask...is steamtown as fast as they "crow" about? Me and 3:40 have a date in 2007:0)

      I just got this comment today (12/07).

      Steamtown is definitely fast, so long as you are okay with downhills. Everyone I was with PRed, including a woman who PRed and BQed for the first time - it was something like her 11th marathon.

      It was my fave marathon so far, it was so well organized and everything. They don't have official pace groups, they have areas where you can meet up with other ppl planning on running the same pace, but it really is a good, fast course. I heartily recommend it!
